 Giving Hearts Day - Thursday, February 12

When You Give, We Give.


January 18, 2015 - Giving Hearts Day is a 24-Hour online give-a-thon that has helped North Dakota non-profits raise record-breaking amounts. In 2014, Giving Hearts Day brought in gifts totaling $5.7 million in 24,407 individual donations for 235 charities. Giving Hearts Day was started in 2008 by Dakota Medical Foundation and Impact Foundation as the region’s first one-day virtual fundraising event.

All donations are made at and the North Dakota Safety Council is one of the participating non-profits. BNC National Bank and Tesoro are this year's Giving Hearts Day Sponsors. Tesoro will be matching donations up to $10,000!

As a private non-profit, we understand that a non-profit’s budget may not always have room for safety training. So this year, the NDSC is PAYING IT FORWARD.

When you GIVE to the North Dakota Safety Council, we’ll GIVE safety training to other non-profits at no cost - CPR/First Aid, Defensive Driving, Violence Planning & Management and Self Protection.

When you give to the North Dakota Safety Council Thursday, February 12, we’ll give all year long. Visit to donate to the NDSC.

To help spread the word at your business, download a Giving Hearts Day flyer here.

Thanks for opening your heart this Giving Hearts Day. 

NDSC, Hess Provide Free Training to Killdeer Students

January 12, 2015 – Traffic crashes are the number one cause of death for drivers between the ages of 14 and 24. To help prevent teen driver fatalities in Killdeer, the North Dakota Safety Council (NDSC) and Hess Corporation partnered to provide free driver safety training to students at Killdeer High School.
Alive at 25 is a 4.5 hour Defensive Driving Course designed to reduce traffic related injuries and fatalities for young drivers. The course focuses on behaviors, decision-making, and unique risks these drivers face every time they get behind the wheel. Thanks to special grant funding provided by Hess Corporation, the NDSC was able to provide this training, free of charge, to 70 juniors and seniors in Killdeer on Monday.

“The goal of our partnership is to ensure these students receive access to training that could potentially save their life. We believe Alive at 25 is the right training to accomplish that goal,” says Terry Weaver, NDSC Traffic Safety Coordinator.

To learn more about Alive at 25, visit or call Terry Weaver at (701) 223-6372.
